in kentucky, vice-president joe biden versus congressman paul ryan. dick morris looks ahead to the debate. why wasn't there enough security at our libya consulate on september 11? the congress grilled the state department and the white house continues to dodge the issue. why the dodge? coverup or incompetence? >> initial assessments in the immediate aftermath of the attack in benghazi were made. and it was a government-wide assessment, the foundation of what ambassador right rice sa oe limited faces that we had available to us at that time. >> let's understand, there was no protest. and cameras reveal that and the state department, the fbi and others have that video. speaking of video, the one in california made by an individual and out there for a period of time, also clearly had no direct effect on this attack. >> when i was in libya, good part of the day, never once did a person ever mention a video. never. and i am fascinated to know and understand from the president of the united states, from the secretary of state and from the ambassador to the united nations, how they can justify that t

, after joe biden was busy defending iran and even paul ryan's answer on this was a little bit incomplete for me, too. nobody has said to the american people what i need to know when we pull out our troops from afghanistan, are we safer off as a nation than when our troops were there? will al qaeda once again have the ability to take root in afghanistan and once again launch a terrorist attack against us? he needs to answer that question. he doesn't care. all president obama wants to do is have a political timeline because it makes him feel good. >> all right, congresswoman, thank you. dr. ruiz, you have one minute to replay. >> she once again speaks a big game, but has failed to really lead in this manner. one is you voted to get us into iraq and president obama got us out and also, he killed osama bin laden. and al qaeda right now is the weakest it's ever been. but we cannot -- we cannot let our guard down. we have to go after the terrorists and make sure they never strike again. and we have to ensure that there are no growing cells anywhere in the world and make sure that we have our r

less than a month. our most high-profile hire, joe biden, had only been with us six weeks. we still did not know joe the plumber yet. so it's funny to look back on that time. remember coming into september four years ago and we had a big convention in denver, an amazing summer, a fund toward that went off flawlessly, we had rolled out our new vice president and rolling in to september and we have a convention that big and we feel we have momentum and the next day john mccain announces sarah palin as vice presidents. you could just feel something all of a sudden. people can say what about how ready she was, but in that moment sarah palin made a pretty grand entrance onto the national stage. she blew through. i often talk about that as hurricane sarah. we had the republican convention. there were two hurricane events in my mind. they had to cancel the first day of their convention and then there was hurricane sarah. the head wind was still for about 18 days. john mccain came out of his convention in september with a three-point lead. that stretched to about six or eight points in mid sept
